Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) Data Management Plans

Arts and Humanities Research Council logoRequirements

From 29th March 2018, AHRC require those applying for funding to submit a Data Management Plan outlining the project’s approach to managing and sharing data. This is a change from the previous requirement to submit a Technical Plan and an explanation of the change can be found on the AHRC website.

Detailed guidance on what to include in your DMP and the format to use can be found in the current AHRC Research Funding Guide, and DMP online has an AHRC DMP template including guidance for each section.

Part of the submission is confirming that your institution has considered and will meet a number of points which support and facilitate good data management. These services are all provided by the OU and if you have any questions about them or any aspect of writing your DMP, please get in touch. Please also feel free to ask us to review your plan before submitting.

Example Data Management Plans for OU projects

We will add examples of completed AHRC DMPs to this page as soon as we have them. If you are happy to share yours, please let us know.
